The Role of Mentor
This is a copy of the original from John Wooden. This copy was given to me by another teacher in my Master's cohort at Concordia University.
I am reminded of the importance of being a mentor, whether we are a parents, siblings, teachers or coaches.
The values we live are going to be mirrored by the people in our life. Many of the students we teach spend more time with us as educators in the classroom than they do with their own parents.
How invaluable is the job we do, as older brothers and sisters to the students entrusted to our care.
